A stunning and challenging race over either half-ironman or quarter-ironman distance in the most beautiful corner of the country, The Lake District National Park. I doubt you will find a better value race over the half iron distance anywhere. You really don’t need to spend hundreds of pounds. Superb venue with camping and caravanning right on the transition field next to the lake. It's a great place to bring the family for a weekend with many local attractions very near-by. With two race distances to choose from its also ideal for club trips. The swim is in crystal clear Ullswater, the cycle route is along beautiful undulating and mainly quiet roads with no major climbs. The run is mostly off-road over low fell paths with some fabulous views across the lakes.
